National Conveyancing Week is a brand-new initiative by property lawyers to improve the experience of home movers and professionals involved in the home moving process.
National Conveyancing Week has been launched to raise the profile of organisations that conduct property transactions and takes place from 20th-24th March 2023.
Property lawyers up and down the country will be participating in a series of events over the week designed to educate and inform all involved in the home-moving process about the complex role of a lawyer in helping people move home.
The property market is the backbone of the UK economy. A healthy property market will generate c. £50bn of economic activity each year as home movers pay for the direct home moving costs (banks, mortgage brokers, estate agents and property lawyers) alongside an estimated £25,000 per home move on soft furnishings, technology and connectivity, and white goods.
Since 2020 the property market has seen record-high numbers of people moving. Factors like homeworking have witnessed significant demographic shifts in lifestyle as people have sought more space, moving away from commuter belts into more rural locations and seeking additional rooms for home offices and studies.
This demand has driven record house prices and resulted in removal firms, estate agents, banks, and property lawyers struggling to cope with record demand levels for their services.
Throughout National Conveyancing Week, estate agents, mortgage brokers and introducers, and the home-moving public are invited to participate in in-person events and online and on-demand sessions to understand better the role of property lawyers in the home-moving process.
Founder of National Conveyancing Week Rob Hailstone says:
“Home buying and selling is one of the most important events that takes place in the lives of nearly everyone at some point in time. It can be time consuming and difficult to understand for many. National Conveyancing Week aims to help de-mystify the many strands that make up the process, not just for the public but also for the numerous stakeholders involved in it”.
Shelyna Mariscal Hansells, conveyancing partner, says:
“the role of a property professional in helping clients to move home is often underestimated. National Conveyancing Week aims to dispel many of the myths surrounding the buying and selling of property and we are keen to be involved in this brand new initiative”.
National Conveyancing Week takes place between the 20th -24th of March. For more information, see https://conveyancingweek.co.uk/
